Planted a packet of flower seeds. Thought i had a volunteer cucumber. No product just flowers
You may have gourd seeds. The first flowers on gourds and pumpkins are male and they do not produce fruit. After the male flowers are done, you will see either pumpkin,gourd, or cucumber or whatever you planted.
Yes it looks like Pumpkin or perhaps even zuchini. My Italian friends use the flowers, stuff them and fry them up in batter. Yum! I currently grow pumpkin and these are very similar!
